Sereď to gain up to 900 new jobs

By the end of 2009, the Slovak-western town of Sereď should have 750-900 jobs more. Marek Švec of the company Devecom, which runs the Sereď industrial park, told the SITA newswire that in the aforementioned period 12-15 new production lines should be built in the park. He expects that negotiations with the foreign partners who are expected to create about 250 jobs and invest Sk1.2 billion (€35.7 million) in the park should be completed by the end of 2008.

The Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) mediated the first contact between the park administrator and more than thirty entities interested in investing in Sereď. One of them was the Belgian company Bruynssel – Vochten, which is the biggest plastic windows producer in Benelux countries, said Švec. It plans to launch production in Sereď in 2008.
